The momentum indicators and oscillators are in the buy mode on the daily as well as weekly scales which also supports the positive momentum. The stock also witnessed a built-up of long positions with the addition of 4 per cent open interest.

BUY HERO MOTOCO | TARGET: Rs 3,350 | STOP LOSS: Rs 3,110
